Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset Review

Updated on June 18, 2012

Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset Review

Creative Fatal1ty is a sort off "in the middle" headset. Not low-end by any means but not really high-end either.

In this Creative Fatal1ty gaming headset review you will read what to expect when buying these headphones.

I'm gonna be taking a closer look on how they feel, how they look, how they sound and how good will your friends and teammates hear you when you chat with them.

Feel

When buying a gaming headset, one of your main concerns is (or should be) how comfortable they are when wearing them for longer periods of time. No matter how good certain headphones sound or look, if you can't wear them for longer than 60 minutes without feeling discomfort, you should think twice before buying them.

Creative Fatal1ty headphones do rather well regarding this matter. They are rather flexible since you can extend or shorten them, depending on the size of your head and they cover your ear completely. They also have some kind of foam-like type of material on top which feels very comfortable.

Even after wearing them for a few hours they don't apply almost any pressure on your ears and you can even forget you're wearing them.

However, if wear them for more than 8 hours, you might start feeling a bit of discomfort. Even then, a 30 minutes break should give you a nice reset and you can continue using them without any problems.

Sound Quality

What good is a headset if it sounds lame and thin ? You probably want to use it for listening to music and watching movies and if not that, you want your games to sound awesome!

After getting these headphones, I realized they sounded way better then some older Sony stereo headphones that I had, they were even better then my logitech speakers.

In the end and to this day, I use them for 95% of things on my computer. The exception would be when I'm working on my music production, then high quality studio monitors are a must but they still provide a good "2. opinion".

Since they're a gaming headset, they have their midrange frequencies boosted. This actually makes you hear other people, who are speaking, more audible in a noisy gaming environment.

Despite that, they provide enough bass to satisfy most of your average listening needs. There's no subwoofer like deep bass, but since we're talking about headphones here, you can't really expect that.

Microphone

It gives a clear sound, and people should have absolutely no trouble in hearing you. It's also damn loud, I have to keep my mic settings very low, otherwise my friends complain about that.

The microphone itself can be unplugged from the headphones (tho it may require some excessive force to pull it out) and it's made out of some kind of flexible material meaning you can basicly set it hos you like and it will stay that way.

To sum it up, you can and probably will use them as your everyday headphones, they're not just useable for gaming, they're useable for just about anything.

Durability / Wrap up

Well I've had them for about 2-3 years and they still work without any problem so that's a +1 in my book.

They've been droped on the floor a few times, the cables have been endlessly twisted and stepped on, microphone has been unplugged and plugged back in many times and they've worked like they should all this time.

These headphones are great for newbie and hardcore gameres as well as for anyone looking for good all-around headphones.

If these were stolen, I'd go get another pair right away.

I hope this Creative Fatal1ty gaming headset review has provided you with what you wanted to find about it.

      I have some old not-very-good headphones and I'm fine with them, but this lens made me want new headphones. Great review, I'll consider these. :-)
